To learn more about these pests, here is how to identify bed bugs in Asheboro and some quick ways to remove them from your living areas.
Clear Signs Of A Bed Bug Infestation In Your Home
It is not always easy to identify a bed bug infestation, especially if one has just started inside your home. If you want to identify these pests, you have to ask yourself: what are the signs of bed bugs? Let’s start with bite marks. Bed bug bite marks appear on the skin in a straight line or zig-zag pattern. Not everyone reacts the same to bed bug bites. Some people have no physical or visible reaction at all. Other ways to identify bed bugs include looking for tiny bloodstains and reddish-black fecal droppings around sleeping areas, checking cracks and crevices for eggs and shed bed bug skins, and thoroughly inspecting your home for live bed bugs. Identify an adult bed bug by its oval-shaped, reddish-brown body, and sometimes bloated/red appearance.
Bed Bug Infestations Only Get Worse With Time
There is only one thing that limits population growth with bed bugs, and that is blood availability. Seeing that these pests only need a tiny amount of your blood to survive, thousands are able to live off you alone. If you do not invest in local pest control for bed bugs after you discover these pests, your problem will get exponentially worse with time. Two possible symptoms of a severe bed bug infestation are insomnia and anemia. Insomnia is a psychological problem that affects sleep and anemia is a condition caused by a lack of red blood cells. To avoid these symptoms, do not hesitate to call the professionals at Otho’s Pest Management to schedule an appointment for your home.
Why Do-It-Yourself Bed Bug Control Often Fails
There are many DIY options we suggest that homeowners do to deal with other pests that live locally. There are no DIY options we recommend for bed bugs. This is because of the nature of these pests. Bed bugs are resistant to many store-bought pest control products and have the unique ability to survive for over a year without a blood meal. If you are not trained to handle an infestation, do not try to eliminate these pests. You likely will only waste your time, money, and effort.
